My reason to be here right now is so I won't be kicked off the list, I admit! But, it's because I hadn't posted until now from - what - shyness? I guess that's it. Maybe someone will read it. Maybe someone will be inspired. Maybe not! But I will contribute! )

I borrowed my mother's Pulling Your Own Strings back in the 70s. I found my cousin, my own age, was reading it too. I recall we were impressed with and laughing about one of the stories in the book, the woman, pulling her own strings, who refused to leave without her meat at the grocery store. (You will have to read it for yourself.)

A lot of water has gone under the bridge, times change, the way people operate business has changed, society has changed. We have all changed since the 70s. Like WD says himself, [someplace, I'm not sure exactly where at this moment!] that when he wrote it, it was relevant and now all these years later he's at a different place and writing and speaking from where he's at now. I can relate to that, PYOS does not really relate to me now, whereas I find myself soaking up and living the simplicity and peace he describes now.

One of my very favorite things I have tried to learn in the past few years is, being kind instead of right. It is humorous to me how hard it was to be right all the time and how easy it is to be kind. It does, by the way, include being kind to myself - I have even learned how to be amused and light hearted, forgiving myself for trying so hard. That in itself is a milestone! Especially want to mention that I have not mastered this art, I backslide, but I realize that's OK.

I want to someplace mention the Meditations for Manifesting CD. I will hunt up the place and describe what happened there! But for now, this is my first post. Blessings to all!

All we can do it put ourselves "out there" and let the world respond as they may.
